of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney had a good week talking about the economy. they want to definele what will be talked about this week on the if foreign policy front. they'll have a hearing about what went on the in libya on the security side leading up to the attack there. that's what he wants to set the stage for. if they talk about foreign policy this week, he wants it to define the terms on which we have that debate. >> because words matter, you started off with with saying i think that's what governor romney was talking about. an ongoing investigation into what happened in libya. obviously, aa he great concern. but you could not answer that question with certainty of what epic failure governor romney and republicans believe has happened over the past four years under this president's leadership, under secretary of state hillary clinton here. that is still unclear even after that 25-minute speech a couple of hours ago. >> he made the case that the middle

administration all over again, especially when it comes to foreign policy. how does that sit with you? obama adviser robert gibbs and newt gingrich can agree on how mitt romney will say anything to get elected. >> mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent mitt romney had a problem with being dishonest in the primary. was he dishonest when he said that? >> i think he's clearly changed. >> romney's positions have changed. the only path for the white house is for voters to pretend the changes never happened. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. who do you trust when it comes to foreign policy decisions? text a for president obama, text b for mitt romney to 622639. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. you can leave a comment on our blog as well. joining me tonight is former chief of staff at the state department during colin powell's term and the visitoring professor at the college of william and mary. cornell, good to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here, ed. >> you heard the speech today. what is fact, what is fiction in mitt romney's foreign policy?
numberes. today donald trump was the late test say the obama administration cooked the books. >> do you think they changed the numbers? >> i do, i do. and i think they did a lot of those -- a lot of monkey business. and i'm telling you, a month and a half from now, they will do a readjustment like has been happening for the last year and a half. they will do a readjustment and the number will be 8.2 or more. >> all right. >> of course last week it was former general electric chief jack welch, alan west and right wing pundits making the allegation. we should remind viewers what got them so siexcited. until a few days guy conservatives were claiming all of the national polls, saying, they must have been off. the latest gallup tracking poll shows president obama's lead widening to five points again. today president obama was shoring up the hispanic vote just days before voter registration deadlines in 11 states. the president dedicated a moment to caesar chavez. >> where there had once been despare, geez ared dis/* dispare, caesar gave people hope. whether it was bet are work conditions, t
-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly right. going to focus on the middle east and northern africa, libya specifically. mitt romney as you noted, wil
was the critique leveled by paul ryan of the foreign policy of the obama administration was essentially stylistic. that the foreign policy rhetoric is insufficiently tough, that there isn't this performance of american toughness that is insufficient to paul ryan and here's a mon taj of how that sounded. >> we wouldn't refer to bashar assad as a reformer. we're not projecting weakness abroad. we shouldn't have called bashar assad a reformer. this invites weakness. >> the bashar assad a reformer. that was his only line on syria policy. largely was rhetoric kalt. now when you talk the three hot spots in the world, not necessarily in the entire world, which is iran, the war in afghanistan and syria, there wasn't as far as i can tell any policy disagreement that they were leveling. take a look. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. >> thank hechks we had these sanctions in place. >> what more would they do other than put american boots to the ground. >> nobody is proposing to send troops to syria. >> we are leaving in 2014, period. >> we agree with the administration o
the recovery happens, and if the recovery happens under a barack obama administration in the second term, retroactively, the stimulus will take on this very haloed view. people will go back and look at it and say it in incredibly favorable light. but everything hangs, as much does, as much as, frankly, the general opinion of the liberal project hangs on the re-election of barack obama. frankly. how that story is written is a story that is written about whether barack obama is re-elected or not. >> exactly right. you're very smart. chris hayes the host of msnbc's weekend morning show "up with chris hayes" which is going to be the bomb tomorrow. chris' new book "twilights of te elites." last night's vice presidential debate was full of obvious entertainment value but also two really important and substantive policy issues that finally became part of the campaign that i think changed the campaign in a really serious way. two issues, have not been the focus of the news about the debate today, but they're about to be the focus of this show. that and frank rich coming up. e. up your game. up t
strategist bob shrumpf. a republican talking point died a bloody death today. >> the obama administration promised that unemployment would not exceed 8%. >> would not exceed 8%. >> unemployment under 8%. >> below 8%. >> tonight a requiem for the 8% promise. the mitt romney coal miner story got even uglier today. we'll talk to the author of a new report that claims the owner of the ohio mine mitt romney visited forced workers to donate to the romney campaign. and the legendary actor lavar burton is mad at mitt romney for going after big bird. >> i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i love big bird. >> tonight the real story about pbs. >> the real story? >> the real story. good to have you with us tonight folks. thanks for watching. the unemployment numbers for september were released today. it is good news for the american recovery. somebody said obama didn't know anything about the economy. well, forget that for now. the national unemployment rate fell to, count it, 7.8%. 114,000 jobs were added to the payrolls. an additional 86,000 were added to revisions for july and august. the
, with the exception of libya which is a special case which the obama administration is clearly on defense. what came across is there is a huge difference in style and attitude how these two campaigns will approach things. when they got to the policies, the two sides are remarkably similar. the romney campaign has throughout this campaign been trying hard to make this big contrast on foreign policy while actually keeping their policies fairly close on afghanistan, syria, on iran, to where the administration is. both sides want a withdrawal in 2014. the difference here is that the romney campaign won't call it a deadline for withdrawal, but they want to withdraw in 2014. both sides support the same set of sanctions for iran. the difference is that the romney campaign may have done something different earlier and may have gone less through the u.n. and may have been more vocal about their criticism of u.n. both have the same policy on syria. the difference is the romney campaign wouldn't have gone through the u.s., wouldn't have been more vocal and supported syrian opposition earlier. on the actual pol
on a wide range of hot button issues in the muslim world from the war in syria and the obama administration shifting response to the deadly attack on the nebs b -- the embassy in benghazi. republican candidate suggesting he would take a harder line to make sure that tehran does not get a nuclear weapon. >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i'll not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. i'll restore the permanent presence of air cast carrier task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions, not just words, that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> despite his criticism that president obama has not slowed iran's nuclear ambition, mr. romney's plan isn't a lot different from that of the presidents. you can see here. the current administration has increased sanctions along w
. and they have both talked about tougher sanctions. obama administration is moving, coordinating with the europeans on tougher sanctions against iran. even as it leaves the door open to diplomacy. i'm not sure what mitt romney can do to except escalate the military option that would differentiate, be that different than what the obama administration has done. >> we also hear that in this speech today he'll emphasize the solution of a two-state solution and when we saw that videotape of a fund-raiser earlier this year, he dismissed that. how important is that in the big picture of foreign policy? >> well, at the moment, the peace process is dead and both men also talk about a two-state solution so again i'm not sure that it's one that will really differentiate the candidates. but it is true that mitt romney has a much stronger relationship with the prime minister of israel and there's almost open hostility between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. >> it does seem that often in campaigns that we talk about the lack of foreign policy experience for many of these candidates and
a generation waiver first from the bush add strrgs then from the obama administration. if this had to be funded by all state money and that federal contribution was capped, the plan would with hiter away. i think you described it best. this is really pulling up the ladder behind him. this is saying the feds made it possible in massachusetts. i'm going to shut off that spigot so it's not possible for anyone else. >> it's possible that as romney touts what he did in massachusetts, the policies could make it impossible even in massachusetts. he's not just pulling up the ladder behind him, it's pulling it up in massachusetts as well, potentially. >> it puts it at risk potentially. it's a question of whether the taxpayers in massachusetts are ultimately willing to bear the cost of this plan. they may or may not be but it puts it at risk. >> we talk a lot in this election about what romney's plan will do to medicare beneficiaries, but what happens to medicaid beneficiaries? you cut medicaid by 600 or 700 billion, what happens to the people who rely on medicaid, the poor or children or elderly disable

stevens and three other americans is quickly moving to the forefront. the obama administration under fire for contradictions in the aftermath and questions about who knew what and when. the topic dominated much of thursday night's vice-presidential debate and it's continuing today. romney camp continuing push hard on it. >> when the prp vice president the united states directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony of state department officials, american citizens have a right to know just what's going on. and we're going to find out. >> that was governor romney yesterday in richmond, virginia. how much of an impact will this issue have on the president's standing with regard to foreign policy. he's a surrogate for the obama cam paper. do appreciate you spending part of your afternoon with us, sir. >> great being back on here, buddy. >> a lot of con nutrition, a lot of second-guessing about what happened in benghazi. here's what republican congressman darrell issa had to say earlier. take a listen. >> they repeatedly warned washington officials about dangerous situation in libya. inst
that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's st
the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just have to live with certain things that are going on there. the cycle of violence that we have been seeing. now calling for beginning anew. kind of an etch-a-sketch moment for the foreign policy initiative, the leadershi
there that suggests that in the latest attacks on the obama administration, once again, romney was being a bit reckless with the facts. look, the positions are been changing. i don't know how you or julian or anybody can say the previous position was romney's actual position and the current ones are false. i don't see how we can know that at all. and i think at this rate, by election day, he'll be significantly to the left of president obama. so possibly -- you know, possibly he's the man. >> quite possibly. julian, it's clearly becoming difficult for romney to remember where he stands on certain things. today it was the national definition authorization act. you mentioned it earlier. he said before, he'd sign it with provisions for indefinite detention. today he doesn't know what it is. here's a little back-to-back to take a look. here it is. >> would you have vetoed it because of that part of the bill that says, hey, we can detain you no matter what? >> i'll look at that particular piece of legislation. >> governor romney, as president, would you have signed the national defense act as writt
criticized the foreign policy of the obama administration but through all accounts and by all accounts has not given specifics on what his foreign policy. so beyond libya and any criticism, if you criticize you've got to -- >> some good points back by joeb. >> what is your plan? >> tense-filled moment. >> yes, chris. >> tamron, you hit it right on the head. vice president biden, what he's got to do is really hold congressman ryan's feet to the fire. he's got to make him answer the questions that they have not had to answer and they didn't answer in the first presidential debate. really put him on the defensive about it and don't let it go. you'll know how this debate is going within the first five, ten minutes in terms of how vice president biden comes out. >> all right. thank you very much. chris kofinis, mr. steele, someone said gene. i feel like the luckiest woman in the world. >> lucky guy. >> still ahead, governor romney's shifting stance on abortion. >> i think i've said time and again i'm a pro life candidate. i'll be a pro life president. >> so will the vp candidates be asked about
had the same position before the withdrawal which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make sure we secure out gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a status of forces agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we are talking about. when it comes to our veterans we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us includie ining your son,. we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition. but what we also want it do is make sure that we're not projecting weakness abroad. that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. which is making the world more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about rig

hundreds of millions of dollars from embassy security financing in recent years. the obama administration's handling of the incident has been called into question after it was revealed that there had not been a protest outside the consulate directly contradicting accounts provided by ambassador susan rice in the days following the attack based on the information she had at the time. >>> now to business, standard & poors lowered the credit rating on spain. now just barely above the level of junk status. the agency also warned of more potential cuts ahead if the country fails to take the proper steps to slow its economic slide. let's get more on the story now from karen cho. good morning. >> good morning. the folk us is back on spain's funding costs and ability to tap the market. we saw the downgrade above negative market. some of the losses have been trimmed. spain is still tracking low. it was down about 1%. now off about .1%. the reason why you're seeing such a recovery so quickly is because this is just closing the gap between s & p's rating and moody's rating. moody's is sitting at the
top jobs in three administrations most recently in the obama administration but also for the former presidents bush, one and two, i think. >> bush one, reagan -- yes. >> all the way back. >> you come with bonified credentials in foreign policy. let's talk about what this speech really indicated on syria. it seemed to me what mitt romney presented today was not to directly arm some. he was talking about working through allies. >> if you read the speech he'll work with allies to see that arms are provided. it's a passive voice. what i heard them saying to you is we'll be more active in terms of trying to make that happen. i think the longer we wait to do it, the harder it will be. >> you would go farther than mitt romney. >> i would. >> the administration is worried about the weapons getting into the wrong hands. >> it is a legitimate concern. what you have to do is focus heavily on identifying those you are prepared to work with, create tests for them. provide the weapons that would create less concern for us like anti-tank weapons as opposed to anti-air weapons. see how they operate
commentator. >> in a move beneath the dignity of the oval office it would appear the obama administration altered the monthly jobs report. >> we learned today two of the leading economists are big obama donors. now that doesn't mean anything. of course not. nothing to see there. >> in media interviews welch decided to double down. >> what evidence -- >> i have no evidence. >> you don't have evidence. it's one thing to doubt the numbers. >> i used question marks last night. >> these chicago guys will do anything. no question mark. you wish you -- you don't stand by -- >> oh, i i stand by it. >> he didn't say the data was manipulated but mitt romney appeared with congressman alan west of florida. romney used his own math to explain the new jobs numbers. >> if we calculated our unemployment rate in a way that was consistent with the way it was calculated with the way he came into office it would be a different number. if p the percentage of the american people in the work force were the same today the unemployment rate would be above 11%. >> on "meet the press" sunday chuck todd lamented the
under the radar. one of the most important things that the obama administration has done which they have not played up is that the holder department of justice has moved very aggressively against police departments that have a history of racial profiling. >> a descent decree in new orleans right now. >> even the instance with joe arpaio out in arizona, the trayvon martin case, those are the high-profile instances, but nationally this has been something that they're very concerned about. you've heard nothing, very little if anything at all about that in this campaign. >> so is that it? is it a branding issue of the obama administration to be able to talk to african-americans about the work they have done as a matter of policy but having difficulty doing so, and so a space like "ebony" where you have kind targeted marketing is a place you can do it? >> yeah, i think it's an important place. i remember they called the president and said we need to talk and started to have more of a public conversation. i think that for african-americans who come out to vote, what i hope people will be looki
is another four years of the same presidential administration. he goes on to argue that the obama administration has demonized the 1%, the true job creators and any increase in taxes would require him to lay off taxes. he just doesn't have enough money. and he ends with this thinly-vailed threat straight from the republican makers and takers textbook. "i can no longer support a system that penalized the productive and gives to the unproductive. my motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed and with it so will your opportunities. if that happens, you can find me in the caribbean sitting on a beach, under a palm tree, retired with no employees to worry about." hold it right there. he worries about his employees. is he alone? does he care? of course, he cares. but this man is greedy. he can't help himself. he can't help hipgs for how much he hates president obama. this is only time he used employees for pawns to advance his own political agenda, but it's not. pe takes credit for george w. bush being elected in 2000. whenever i saw a negative article about al gore, u put
, jack welch led a group of lesser lights saying the numbers must have been manipulated by the obama administration and that the unemployment rate couldn't really be below 8%. jon stewart weighed in. >> it's got to be corrupt political manipulation of the official statistics. what else would explain why after unemployment has been steadily declining for the last year that now suddenly right before the election it declines a little more? please. >> a lot of people are saying that the government's cooking the books here. >> i'll tell you these guys are saying they feel like they cooked the books. >> look, i got to say, if you're cooking the books, 7.8% unemployment is a [ bleep ] recipe. it's like the radish stew of jobless numbers. if you're cooking, make a nice jambalaya, something nice for people. unemployment is 2.6%. >> enough said. with the election just weeks away, positive news about the economy ignites desperation among angry republicans. >>> last time i told you about republican congressman paul broun, the member of the house science committee who called things like evolution

points against the obama administration. look, they've got a big problem on the issue. since 2011, they cut nearly half a billion dollars from embassy security. secretary state clinton warned last year how devastating those cuts could be. >> the scope of the proposed house cuts is massive. the truth is, that cuts of that level will be detrimental to america's national security. >> it's a mess for republicans. but mitt romney isn't makinging it any better. for the past two days he's been sharing this story on the trail. as part of an effort to make himself seem more compassionate. >> i've met some wonderful people. one was a former navy s.e.a.l. he was killed in benghazi a couple of weeks ago. >> today they demanded that mitt romney stop. she told a boston tv station, quote, i don't trust romney. he should make my son's death part of his political agenda. it's wrong to use these brave, young men who wanted freedom for all to degrade obama. this afternoon the romney campaign announced they wouldn't use that story on the campaign trail again i think the american people feel the same
case that the obama administration has brought us from the worst economic crisis we've faced since the great depression as a result of failed policies of the past forward 31 straight months of job growth and that we need to continue to have president obama and he in office so that they can continue to get the economy turned around and create jobs and move forward rather than what paul ryan and mitt romney have proposed, which is to take us back to policies that crashed our economy, that -- here's the bottom line. american voters the next 26 days will have a choice and joe biden will make this case. do we want to go back to a window of time like those under president clinton when we had the longest sustained prosperity as a result of middle class focused economic policies or do we want policies like those during the bush era that focused on tax breaks for the wealthiest and almost no regulation. i think the choice is clear. >> 9 hours, 30 minutes, you and i whether be watching along with most americans. thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you. >>> it's a high stakes deba
at the morning papers. they're not new york city tabloids. the seattle times, the obama administration. willie, i don't get this, man. this is serious. the white house cannot get their story straight on benghazi. they originally claimed the attack on the u.s. consulate from benghazi stemmed from a protest over an anti-islam film in the u.s. and posted online. he officials at the state department said that was never their conclusion. diplomats first realized they were under attack when they heard explosions and saw armed men on suhr vamance cameras entering the compound. a congressional set for today. willie, what is going on? the white house sends out susan rice. she says something five days later. this is an embarrassment for the white house. it's an embarrassment for the state department. it's an embarrassment for susan rice. they still a month later can't get their stories straight. what's up? >> all we heard in the aftermath was about this youtube video. >> the president apologized repeatedly. >> susan rice went out five days after the attack on "meet the press" and elsewhere and said this is
. and there is just no confidence in the obama and the administration to create jobs. they haven't been able to do it in the past four years. and people are nervous about their economic security. and ultimately, that's going to cost the administration of virginia. i know it's going to cost him the election in prince william county and the other key suburb areas outside of washington. >> you know, i'm glad you mentioned that. because a lot of folks who aren't familiar with the geography of virginia, essentially, you've got two virginias. you've got fairfax county, you've got arlington, you've got alexandria, and then you've got the rest of virginia. what a lot of folks like to call the real virginia with the exception of richmond, with the exception of norfolk. how are those two areas, brian, how are they distinctly different? >> well, i'm in hampton roads today. we're registers voters with visiting college campuses throughout the weekend because our voter registration deadline is close of business on monday, october 15th. so we are still in the mode of registering voters. but let's get back to you
administration policy for ryan to litigate against president obama and joe biden. so i think if the question is, is there material for examination tonight in kentucky, absolutely there is. and do those issues that you raise, are they likely to come up? absolutely. but what amie said is absolutely correct. you'll see the congressman articulate governor romney's positions on how to get the economy growing, how to jump start, you know, the economy and provide jobs, and be very focused on that. if the attacks come from the left and from biden all night on issues that are over the stern, they are looking backward. it doesn't seem to be synergistic with forward looking campaign. >> four years, backwards looking if that is what they do -- >> what's the plan for the future or medicare? >> fair enough. >> what's the plan for social security? the obama plan is to do nothing. >> there's something to be said about the fact people know what the president and vice president have been doing, there's more public attention on the oval office, the economy. in terms of paul ryan, one of most telling parts of the
the obama administration's policies at all. he would give us the impression he would be more tolerant of an israeli strike on iran. i personally am not convinced of that. i'm not convinced his policy wouldn't be essentially the same as president obama's, which is caution. >> indeed. eugene, michael, thank you both this afternoon. >>> next, mitt's other extreme makeover. do lies even matter in america these days? stay with us. >> governor romney showed up to deliver a performance, and he delivered a very good performance. it was completely unrooted in fact. it was completely unrooted in the positions he's taken before, and he spent 90 minutes trying to undo two years of campaigning on that stage, but he did it very well. >> are you saying that governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> yeah, i think he was dishonest, absolutely. i'm barack oba ma, and i approve i'm barack this message. oba these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney
mistakes that the obama administration says, they didn't have enough of the private sector organization. the one way i would propose to deal with that is put in someone like larry fink. people will scream, oh, my god, wall street. someone who's actually been in the trenches hiring and firing. you need somebody who's done that. >> speaking of the trenches, when you redo this game can you make it a foreign policy so we can do risk and attack on the country. >> thank you very much. up next, if you've ever wanted to see steve kornacki in high school, just wait.

, the bush administration and obama administration, we always knew that u.s. consulates and embassies are absolutely prime targets for terrorist attacks. we've seen this before in the bush administration, we had attacks in the consulate in karachi and pakistan in saudi arabia, in jeddah, in syria, and elsewhere throughout the region. so this is not entirely new. we know the threat is there. i think what we've seen in libya is, obviously a government which still had a real challenge in using its own forces to protect the limited u.s. presence and very legitimate questions now about the degree of security that was there at the embassy. from what i understand, there still was no long specific actual intelligence about this attack, but it's quite clear there was a threat in libya generally, a specific threat that we'd seen over the previous couple months in benghazi, and now obviously the congress and the executive branch have to look hard and see should that security have been heightened, but as you noted, the diplomatic security within the state department has long been a target of budg
with a collective eye roll from people who are democrats and republicans. is there any way the obama administration could actually have cooked up these numbers? >> uh, in a short answer, i would say no. i think the last president who was accused of, and where there was evidence that he tried to mess with the bureau of labor statistics was richard nixon. since then, it is a bureau full of professionals and i think that jonathan is exactly right. we would know if there was some funny business going on there. not to mention that if they were going to cook the books, wouldn't they have done it months ago when it would have more of an impact, and wouldn't they have said the unemployment rate is, i don't know, 4%. it seems extremely far fetched. i would be shocked if we eventually discovered they had played some role in it. >> jonathan allen and anne, thank you for joining us today. stick around, we'll see you later on this hour p. >>> was mitt romney really a bipartisan governor in massachusetts? one of his old political foes joins us in the next hour. >>> and who does michelle obama think should play h
for the republicans. and they were talking about cooking the books, et cetera. was the obama administration didn't spike the ball, because we know that there is a long way to go yet, despite the good news. it's indication that we're beginning to clean up the mess that was left to barack obama when he was sworn in. but that, no, that we're not satisfied, but it certainly is an indication, one that the republicans simply won't recognize that progress is, in fact, being made despite their efforts to try to talk down the economy, to try to sabotage any legislation that would actually put people to work. so i think they can't deny the math. >> all right. we'll have to leave it at that. democratic congresswoman jan schakowsky from the obama campaign, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. >>> there's been a lot of talk about which mitt romney have shown up at wednesday's presidential debate. but many say they've seen that mitt romney before. coming up, we'll talk to a person who says she debated that mitt romney back in 2002, massachusetts democrat shannon o'brien. >>> sky-high, the price of g
're going it try to find those people who we can help with weapons, which is what the obama administration is doing. on the top line, he talks this big, strong, big stick game but he doesn't really seem to have a clue about how you would even do that in real life. >> he also -- >> steve i have to get to something dishonest here. i think everybody agreed with your hawk, middle of the road, or a dove, you will agree this is dishonesty here. in the two-state solution it's different what he says in public and behind closed doors to backers. here was romney today sounding reasonable, in fact, consistent with u.s. policy. let's take a look. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. on this vital issue, the president has failed and what should be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. >> ear here he is in may at tha
the same words that the obama administration has been weak and libya and syria have been mishandled. here's congressman ryan fakes off on one of the deans of foreign policy for this administration. >> i think a tremendous disadvantage for congressman ryan, as it will be for governor romney when he faces off against the president on foreign affairs. i think joe biden will make sure they don't stray from the truth. in yesterday's speech somewhat unbelievably to me after all the contention about misstatements, governor romney made two significant misstatements again shows a disregard for the facts. one he said, tamron, there was no discussion of terrorism in the 2008 debates. we saw last night on msnbc they played the tape. >> there's tape to prove he wasn't accurate. >> 40 mentions of terrorism in that debate, and he said president obama hasn't signed a single free-trade agreement, when, in fact, he signed three. joe biden won't let him get away with it. going back to domestic policy for a section, congressman ryan said we don't have enough time to make the math add up. i think what the vic
